Black History Month
Black History Month is a month of events in October which celebrate the culture, history and achievements of Britain’s African and Caribbean communities.
"Black History Month is an important moment in the University’s and the city’s calendar. It provides an opportunity for everyone to explore and learn about the culture and heritage of the African diaspora. At UWE Bristol, we see this as a core part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion" - Professor Steve Neill, Senior Diversity Champion for Race, and Dean of the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences.
This year Bristol celebrates an impressive programme for Black History Month.
